W >> - T),J., wecl( end (he town of Ellenton, s. c., ceases to exist—a place o( beautiful homes, more than a century old. a historic early American monument. It had to go to niakn part of the room for the huge H-bomb plant that covers 315 square miles of South Carolina across the Savannah River near here. A year and three months ago notice was Riven, and March 1 Is the deadline when every person I and home has to be gone, what is I left probably has to be destroyed I AH 690 Are Cone I All Wleiiton's 600 people are gone I and 80 ot (heir 150 homes. Thev i are among GflDO persons similarly j moved from the vast military area ' Ellenton's story is typical of 1 (hem all. FA-cn though ihis is prob- I nbly the most kindly conducted of j all dictated evacuations and j though many Ellentonians and I others have reaped rich financial; rewards. Ihe story Is S!1 ri.

Among some there is a sense of injustice at not getiin» what they believe te replacement value for 1 what they had fo giva up. These values were not lost for any lack of effort to be generous by the 0. S. Atomic Energy Commission, and state, county and federal authorities.

Engineers appraised the land liberally, at better than current values. People who were land-)xx>r—lots of area with little productivity—juinped to com . parailve wealth. Others, bv the lime they got their monev on smaller parcels of land, couldn't replace because outside land had skyrocketed in this area at boomtown rates. Some Complain Some took their complaints to court and juries have never failed to give them move. But many haven't had the means to go to court. Hardest hit were among tenant farmers, both Ne=ro and White. They had no land to sell. They hnrt no more jobs. Many were too old to compete for jobs iu ne\v areas. StiJl more were heartbroken to leave. Many were helped to jobs by agricultural agents, others »dt jobs and better wages on the H-bomb plant construction. But even where it is better, life will never be the same. OSCEOLA NEWS L Daniel Murplii "BIROMAN" OF THE FUTURE-Mnrme S<n 01 PiiislMirBh, Pa., shows the Navy's "hop,,, t oi>te.
